Watery Wednesday #1 - Photos from HB Pier

This is my 1st ...
Three recent views from the
pier in Huntington Beach, California
'Surf City' USA
If I'd had my Tamron 28-300mm lens that day instead of the basic Nikon D60 18-55mm lens, I'd have captured a better view of the whale in the 3rd photo. Live & learn ;--)

and for others participating in Watery Wednesday.

I'm almost Wordless at Happily Retired Gal today.

Welcome to Watery Wednesday!

Great shots. The water looks beautiful and I not only love the wave but that you showed the surfers out there having fun. What is that in the last shot? Dolphin? Whale? :-)

Beautiful. Southern CA has the greatest shoreline. They just do.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

Excellent sequence. Looks like great fun.

I had to "embiggen" this photo because they just looked so very interesting. I like the first picture especially because that one guy at the bottom is staring straight at a decently sized wave.

George said...

I tink you got great pictures even if you didn't have the long lense. I really likes the surf in the first picture.

Unknown said...
